Great little museum

Small, compact but full of interesting items pertaining to the locality. Nice cakes served in the cafe which was very cramped for our party of visitors. Staff were helpful.

What a rare treat to be found in the center of St. Neots. A great little museum in my home town and has lots of interesting information about the area with very pleasant staff. The museum relates the tales of the history of the area telling the local stories of families who lived here, including the 1st survival quadruplets. Downstairs... More

Local museums are always fun. Worth the visit. It's a small-ish market town and hasn't been at the epicentre of world events, but the team has done a nice job of telling the local stories there are to tell including that of the Quads - the first survival quadruplets. They put on lots of activities for local schools.

I have lived in st Neots for 5 years and never been before. So glad we did, I was rather surprised by the size of it..lots of information and things for the kids to do. My boys 7,7 and 6 really enjoyed it, seeing the old prison and dressing up..looking at how school used to be. Such a good place... More

Oh what a lovely little museum this is. We have been with our grandchildren and on our own and its always informative. They sell local postcards(we have struggled to find these in the past) and the usual things you expect to find in most museums. The staff are always friendly and some are very knowledgeable about the area. History enactments... More
